Party Earth Black and White Review

The Scene

As the name suggests, the NoHo watering hole Black and White is all about contrasts, and this bar manages to be both dark and sultry and warm and welcoming all at the same time.

As the name suggests, the NoHo watering hole Black and White is all about contrasts, and this bar manages to be both dark and sultry and warm and welcoming all at the same time.

Popular with a diverse mix of hipsters, young professionals, and college kids, the bar isn’t much more than a candlelit basement room fitted out with an oak bar, red- and gold-paneled walls, dark wood tables, and black leather booths arranged to maximize the space – a good thing considering how packed the place gets on prime party nights, which start on Wednesdays at this neighborhood hotspot.

Generally mellow in the early evenings when the after-work crowd stops in for drinks and mingling, the place and the crowd get progressively rowdier as the evening wears on.

Rocker bartenders and beer-soaked floorboards add to the party vibe, as chatty twenty-somethings heatedly flirt until 10pm, when DJs take over and the house starts rocking with danceable classic jams that whip the exuberant crowd into a hip-shaking frenzy.

Perfectly situated near NYU, Black and White makes for an ideal pit stop for cheap pre- and post-party drinks, though most loyal regulars tend to hang out all night to get the full sloshy experience.

Tip from Lucas:

This is not a big place, so use the close quarters to your advantage – find the hottie you’ve been eyeing and conveniently bump into her. Nothing says up close and personal like a packed bar.

  • Crowd

    Young professionals and college students on the weekends, hipsters and music lovers during the week, 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Local DJs spin 70s, 80s, and 90s tunes from all genres, nightly 10:30pm–4am.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Happy Hour daily 6–8pm.

  • Prices

    Beer $5+, mixed drinks $5+, shots $6+, top-shelf liquor $7+.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Usually casual, though dressier later on: untucked button-downs and nice jeans for guys and cocktail dresses and heels for women.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any day for relaxed after-work drinks, Fridays after midnight for a spirited party crowd, and Saturdays for meat market central.

  • Close By

    Village Pourhouse (NoHo) (64 3rd Avenue) is the perfect sports bar to pre-game before a raucous night at Black and White.
